The Trotwood-Madison Educational Foundation was founded in 1989 by a group of concerned citizens of the Trotwood-Madison community. The Foundation was established as an association, separate and distinct from the Trotwood-Madison Board of Education.
The Foundation became a component fund of The Dayton Foundation in 1990. It is devoted to improving the education of youth in the Trotwood-Madison City School District and to providing college scholarships to its graduates. The fund was initiated with gifts from residents of that school district.
